Stocking Full of Love in White on White

I'm squ"eek"ing this one in under the wire! It's for the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge and the deadline is less than three hours from now. As those little mice would say "EEK!" I am also submitting this card for this week's Stamp Something Challenge.

The House Mouse challenge blog is celebrating it's first birthday and the theme for this challenge was to choose one or more of your favorite challenges from the last year for your entry. I chose two - Challenge #43 (the sketch shown below) and Challenge #47 (White on White). I didn't have the opportunity to participate in the White on White challenge when it was posted, so I was glad to have another opportunity. For this challenge only the image could be colored. All other elements of the card had to be white. I used some embossing to add some texture and help define the elements of the card.

The sketch I used is from Challenge #43 and is one of my favorites. I have used it on other cards and also seen several others use it as well. Since the theme for this week's Stamp Something challenge is something with your favorite sketch or layout, I am submitting it for that challenge as well. Like most other things, I don't have one favorite sketch or layout, but this is definitely one a like a lot and have used more than once.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great week!!!

I chose the white on white too but I have to say yours definitely stands out more than mine - all the texture is great!
